LET’S GET FLOCKING VAXXED, ST. PETE!

Our St. Pete community, and the businesses we all love, need your help reaching flock immunity and protection from COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

ABOUT #DOITFORTHEBURG
The #DoItForTheBurg campaign is an initiative between The St. Pete Chamber, the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership and the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg, designed with residents and business owners in mind. Through this partnership, the campaign was designed to help bring vaccination pop-ups directly to our community; eliminating the need for scheduling and stepping away from work.

THE VAXX PIN
Those who get vaccinated at one of our pop-up events will receive a special “Vaxx Pin”. If you have been fully vaccinated and would like a pin for yourself, your family or team, please contact Bianca Soler.

ENCOURAGING EMPLOYEES
Looking for ways to encourage your employees to get vaccinated? Here are some ways employers are encouraging employees to get vaccinated:

  • Offer employees two days of paid time off in case they are feeling down the day after their shot (one day for each vaccine dose)
  • Offer a cash incentive (ex. one-time payment of $100 with proof of full vaccination)
